Chelsea's Diego Costa: 'I'm not going to change my way of playing'

Chelsea captain John Terry believes Nemanja Matic's absence from the English League Cup final is "a big miss" and added that he expects "a tight game" against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
Hard-charging Diego Costa has no intentions of changing his game now, he says.

Chelsea striker Diego Costa believes he is already a victim of his own reputation in England but insists he will never change his aggressive style.

Costa returned to domestic action against Burnley last weekend after serving a three-match ban for stamping on Liverpool's Emre Can.

The ESPN FC panel discuss why despite Tottenham's impressive victory over Chelsea when the sides last met, Chelsea remain heavy favourites in the League Cup Final.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho turned down an approach from Tottenham after leaving Stamford Bridge in September 2007.

Speaking ahead of Sunday's Capital One Cup final between the sides when he will seek a first trophy of his second spell, the Blues boss admitted that an exit clause forbade him from managing in England for two years and that even Spurs' attempts to pay compensation to the Blues fell short.

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth breaks down this weekend's fixtures, and notes his top picks in terms of bets.

Football Association chairman Greg Dyke has brushed off Chelsea's criticism after the governing body's decision to ban Nemanja Matic for two matches.

Chelsea said they were "appalled" by the FA's decision to ban Matic for pushing Burnley's Ashley Barnes, while taking no action against the Clarets player for his challenge on the Serbian midfielder during the 1-1 draw.

Jose Mourinho claimed the FA "lose credibility" by making such decisions, but Dyke responded by saying: "I don't get involved in the...

Jose Mourinho wants his Chelsea squad to become Wembley regulars.

Mourinho is bidding for the first trophy of his second spell at Stamford Bridge when the Blues play Tottenham in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday.

Chelsea have not won the trophy since Mourinho's second League Cup success in 2007 - they were beaten by Spurs in the final the following year - and last claimed silverware in 2013 when they lifted the Europa League.

"Chelsea cannot win everything and cannot win every season," Mourinho said.

Diego Costa, Harry Kane prepare for Wembley battle in a tale of two strikers

Thibaut Courtois insisted they weren't solely focused on in-form Harry Kane and said, "We need to see how to stop him, but of course stop all of Tottenham."

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether or not Chelsea and Tottenham's Cup title match is more important than Liverpool and Manchester City's match.

Theirs is a comparison of an expensive foreign import and a great young hope of the English game starring for the team he supported as a boy. One has inspired cynicism, the other romanticism and in their own ways, Diego Costa and Harry Kane have become the leading men of the 2014-15 English season. On Sunday, their respective performances in the 2015 Capital One Cup final could well prove crucial to the final result.

Costa arrived in London in the precise mould that Jose Mourinho wants from...
